18- “Timecop” #52PickUp 2017

*Guys, Timecop predicted the Presidency of Donald Trump.

My love of time travel concepts goes deep. So deep in fact, that I decided to revisit a time travel movie masked as a 90s cheesy action film. Or is it the other way around? Which is it, Timecop? And are you any good still?

Cool poster. They must have had myriad concepts from which to choose.

 

Timecop doesn’t waste any time getting into the action. The film opens with a theft of Gold Buillion in the year 1863. All looks normal until the robber pulls out advanced plasma guns to wipe out the transport team. Clearly, he’s not from that time or the present day of 1994. Wait, in what year is the future of Timecop?

35- “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare” #52PickUp

It’s that time again; Halloween Season! And since I’m a few weeks behind (and I have more than four Halloween-themed movies to watch) I’ve decided to begin early.

When I decided that I would watch classic films from my childhood, I knew that a film from the A Nightmare on Elm Street series had to be included.

What I didn’t realize was how difficult it would be to choose. See, I love all of them, as Freddy Krueger is my favorite horror villain (yes, even over Jason), and each film has its own personality. One of my favorites was the sixth film in the series: Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, but I didn’t think it represented what I enjoyed about the series, even though the dreams are awesome, and the kills are unique (first comics, and now video games, yo!).

Then it hit me. What better way to fully represent not only the film’s history, but my love of fourth-wall breaking and the idea of creating film and the mythos involved, but to talk about the seventh film:
